Help Crown Heights High School Students Win a National Championship

I'm behind the news this week, but as covered on WPIX-11 (video above) and NY1 and written up in the Daily News (this link is worth a click), the Medgar Evers College Preparatory School Marching Band has been invited to compete in the national championships in Atlanta, but since the NYC DOE doesn't have the funds to send them, they're trying to raise $35,000 by Saturday (I don't think ILFA has a particularly affluent readership, but if someone with that kind of cash lying around is reading, get on this!). The "East Coast Ocean of Soul" is one of the many initiatives that have made Medgar Evers a top-performing, nationally-recognized public high school right here in Crown Heights.
